First, I would like to start this post by saying that I am not an alcoholic. I know I know, I sure do talk a lot about Bourbon, but it’s all about moderation. Now that we have that out of the way – let’s get to some shroom talk.
You may already know this, but it’s Morel season. Fresh morels are starting to hit specialty stores and those of us that love a good shroom are already drooling over the culinary possibilities that a great fresh morel can offer.
Morels are interesting to say the least. In their raw form they are almost Alice in Wonderlandish and in dried form look a little like mulch for the garden. But the taste. The taste is incredible…whether fresh or rehydrated from dried. They are nutty and delicate and pair wonderfully with red meats, wine and pasta, to name a few.
Disclaimer: I was shipped an ounce of morel mushrooms for free from Marx Foods. I was not paid for this post and all opinions are my own.
